Today, the image that came to me in a vision of my spirit guide comes out to play. Today the Queen of Vessels comes swimming past us, leaping up the river to spawn. Cascading downwards is a fast waterfall. Above her, a tree in late bloom shields her from the heat of the sun.
Salmon in Shamanic terms represent self-sacrifice and wisdom. The fact that no matter where they have been, they can and do swim back to the same spot from which they were born and often die in the attempt is simply amazing. Some might say, miraculous.
So, for today, what does she represent? Her innate and inherent wisdom, her self-sacrifice and sheer determination come to the fore today. It’s a Sunday, but that doesn’t mean we have to or ought to, sit down and do nothing constructive. If anything, be constructive.
